June 6, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana seniors Leah Enterline and Arnaud Roussel were two of 22 student-athletes that were named Big Ten Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners, which was announced by the league office on Wednesday, June 6.
Enterline, a guard on the IU women's basketball team, and Roussel, a standout athlete for the Hoosiers' men's tennis squad, were chosen out of 269 student-athletes that were honored throughout the academic year who had displayed positive sportsmanship.
One member of each varsity sports team on every Big Ten campus was chosen by the institution as a Sportsmanship Award honoree, and from each university's list, two Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners were then selected. All of the Sportsmanship Award honorees have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. In addition, these student-athletes must be in good academic standing and must have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports competition setting.
